Budding Thanks

Hello again! 😄
I am back today with TWO cards! I know! It's like I'm on a roll or something. 😂 

So last week I made a trip to my LSS to place an order for the new Tim Holtz glass mat that was released at Creativation last month. While I was there I could not resist getting a few Altenew goodies to play with. One of my acquisitions was the AMAZING 'Budding Thanks' set. 
It is honestly such a great stamp set. It makes it so easy to whip up a card that looks like you've spent hours making. 
Here are the two cards I've made so far, but stay tuned because I think this set is going to get a serious workout. (There is one flower I haven't even used yet.😯)

For this card I stamped each flower with the coordinating layers onto a 4.25 X 5.5 panel. Then I used some Copic markers in C1 and N2 to create the shadows around the flowers.This little detail makes such a difference in the depth and dimension it adds to the finished card.  I then went over each flower with a Wink of Stella shimmer brush pen to add some shimmer. Once this was done, I die cut it using the large scalloped frame from the MFT Blueprints 27 set.  Next I used a smaller scallop from the stitched scalloped mini stax set to cut out a frame in the centre of the panel. I mounted the large frame onto a black card base and used some foam tape to pop the frame in the centre up. The sentiment is the 'Many Thanks' die cut from Ellen Hutson. I cut off the word many and then heat embossed the thanks with some clear EP to add dimension. To finish off this card I added some clear rainstones from PTI. 

For my second card I stamped the flowers and sentiment onto a 3X5.5 inch white card panel. Once I was done stamping I added some Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to the flowers and sentiment. I mounted the panel onto a silver glitter panel.  I then attached that to a soft stone card base. 

See, easy as pie. 😬

Well, I hope you enjoyed my offerings for today. thanks for stopping by.
